Ascent Trip Report

#72 on the NH Fire Tower list. As recommended from other trip reports, we started our hike from the parking area for the Nature Conservancy's Teneriffe Preserve on Teneriffe Road. We walked over to the west side of the road and found the unsigned yellow-blazed trail heading into the woods. It was no trouble to follow at first. The trail descended at first, crossing a small brook. It then ran across a steep sidehill, which was actually quite difficult in the crusty snow conditions. After less than 0.2 miles, the trail made a few switchbacks uphill, then turned away from the summit, where the blazes abruptly ended in the middle of the woods just below a large open field. We looked around for the trail for a while, then decided to just walk up into the clearing and follow that to the summit. We emerged in the field not far from a private residence, which had its own trail to the summit. There were excellent views from the clearing in several directions. We walked up through the low bushes and soon picked up the scattered herd paths and trails coming from the house. At the top of the field, we crossed through a strip of forest and made it to the highpoint. Just beyond was a smaller clearing with good views in the other direction.
